Commenting on the former Finance Minister P Chidambaram's tweet on Electoral Bonds, the Union Minister said a fair system doesn't suit people who are involved in corruption from head to toe.

"People involved in corruption from head to toe, a fair system does not suit them. As for the electoral bands, this process has been done with honesty and with the intention to root out black money," he said.

Chidambaram had on Saturday tweeted, "I have asked my family to tweet this on my behalf: Electoral Bonds are the biggest scam of the decade. Purchasers will be known to the Bank and, therefore, to the Government. The donor will be known to the party (BJP) to which he donated."

"Donor who did not donate to the BJP will be known to the BJP. If anyone is completely in the dark it will be the people of India. Long live transparency!," the former Finance Minister said in another tweet.
